It’s first day back to work, it was a slow day, but that’s not the point of this post. I am having a rest day from the gym, but that’s not the point either. So, why don’t I get to the point? Because I’m not sure how to put what I’m trying to convey for it to feel genuine and I really want this to come out the right way. You see, I’m a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas, just a bit. I admit. Christmas has become too commercialized and it hasn’t always been a happy time for me, but today even though I have not been visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future I have received an unexpected message from a fellow yogi that has made my day and brightened my outlook on the holiday season a bit. It was a simple Christmas card (Randy really appreciated the animal holiday gathering BTW), a business card and a lovely anklet.
It arrived in the mail on January 5th due to an extra digit in my address, but somehow it got here. It was so unexpected! The effort put into making a piece of jewellery and a long hand written message (so very rare these days) makes me want to make some New Year’s Resolutions even though I initially was not going to make any!
So, here it comes:
1. Be a better person! – So generic, I know, but I often times feel somewhat misjudged because I come across standoffish (as Randy would say) until you get to know me better. So, to facilitate it I will smile more for no apparent reason, I will be more outgoing, so that people know me for me and not for my appearance and I will be less crooked in the mornings 🙂
2. Snack less! – Since this is a food-fitness blog, I can’t not make a New Year’s Resolution that doesn’t involve food. Yes, I do have my food vices. They come in the healthy variety (sometimes not so much when paired with wine), but nonetheless they sometimes come when I’m not actually hungry and that’s a no-no in my books. So this year I will eliminate snacking when not hungry and eat when I’m hungry only.
And BTW you should go and check out my friend Trish’s jewellery site! She has some gorgeous looking pieces for sale!
